But inexplicably that arbitrary split contained the 50+PA's from his two week 2010 August out of body stretch (slash line of .326/.392/.500 over a span of 52 PA's) and completely ignores his final 95 PAs of 2010 in which he posted a slash line of .218/.284/.310. If the actual goal of discussing Janish in the context of this thread is to estimate his true skill level as reasonably as possible, arbitrary splits like above should be avoided in favor of all of the data.
You're right. To get the best idea of Janish's current skill level we should include up to the end of the year. And I'm pretty bad at math, sorry for the wrong numbers.
BUt I have a feeling that if you did the math, it would reveal that since the end of Aug 2009 to the end of the 2010 season, Janish OPS'd around .700, which is what I would expect him to hit in 2011 if he were to start. Teamed with his defense, that would make him at least a league average SS.
